I've really got to get around to converting my Hummer to use nuclear power. Been meaning to do it for years.

I've got a box of Radioactive Spark Plugs. A couple are 14mm of the correct reach for a Hummer. Most of them are 18mm, so if all goes well, I can convert the Henderson and Farmall Cub tractor to nuclear power too.

You can read more about them on this Oak Ridge web site:

Polonium 210 was used in the initiator of every nuclear weapon from 1945 until around 1959. Imagine what this stuff can do for a Hummer! I'll report back with the results of my experiment - it'll probably be a blast!

Any truth to the rumor that he 69001-55A was built of fermium, and hence decayed in 100.5 days?
